  This Daylight Stuff is Weird

17 May 2001

9:47 PM: Land's sakes. I've been home long enough to rewatch both Buffy and Angel, eat a cheese steak sammich, and fiddle to no great point with the tracking on both VCRs, and it's still not even 10 PM. What do people do with all this time on their hands? Oh right, TV. Well, but, did that.

Went to see Big Love with Veronica at Berkeley Rep last night. Very cool. Weird modern retelling of "The Suppliant Women" by Aeschylus, the hot new name in 2500-year-old Greek playwrights. (Modern version by Charles L. Mee.) The floor of the stage was a bright pink vinyl-covered mat, like a gymnast mat. Which the actors probably appreciated during the parts where they repeatedly threw themselves into the air and onto the floor. And that made perfect sense at the time, too. I said it was kind of weird.

Tons of fun, bright, colorful, music and killing and exaggerated Italian dialects and the war of the sexes and Barbie and Ken. Only one play left this season. God, everything is happening this month. Summer is going to be like grade school all over again.

Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.

All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
